Herrenhäuser Konferenz: "Beyond the Intestinal Microbiome - From Signatures to Therapy"

Beschreibung: Onaka - "honoured middle" - that's how our intestine is described in Japan. A wise choice: being populated by about 1014 microorganisms, the gut and its microbiome are considered to be pivotal players for our overall health.

Identification and sequencing of gut microorganisms has been the starting point. Today, researchers are beginning to understand the fascinating linkages between our microbiome and our organism. As the field widens and various sub-disciplines like pharmacology and infection biology address this topic, a deeper understanding of the function as well as of the therapeutic potential of the gut microbiome can be achieved.

Defining, exploring and improving our gut health may hold an enormous preventive and curative potential with regard to the severe illnesses (like cardiovascular diseases, rheumatic and autoimmune diseases or diabetes) and obesity - a whole new medical approach may beckon.

Experts from fields as diverse as Inflammation, Microbial Communication, Evolutionary Game Theory and Diabetes will gather at an inspiring venue to address open questions and the multiple new insights and opportunities of the most current research trying to unriddle the mysteries of the gut microbiome.
